OK. When a sample library is sold, the original purchaser gets a license to use those samples. This license is non-transferable, ie the purchaser can\'t then sell the samples on to someone else and give them a legal licence to use them. All well and good, and we understand the reasons why this has to be so.
With software, its different. The license agreements of most commercial software state that you CAN sell the software on to another user, and they will then have a full legal license to use it, as long as you don\'t keep a copy yourself. Generally you can even transfer the registration details with the manufacturer.
So - here\'s a tricky situation. What happens when you buy somthing like NI Kontakt, which is a piece of software with samples included? Can you sell it on if you decided you don\'t want it any more? And if you do, can you include the samples with it (obviously without keeping a copy yourself)? It would seem a bit strange to sell on the software disk, but retain the sample content because that has a non-transferable license.
Is it just a case by case thing, and all you can do is look at the individual license agreement and see what it says? Or is there some kind of established procedure or precedent for this type of software/sample combination?
